Is Jessica Linscott the one who brutally abused her toddler son? At least two family members have spoken out in support of Roland Dow, who is facing the worst of the charges out of the two. The 90-year-old grandmother of the man spoke out to the media about the charges against him, and says that he'd never harm a child, but is she just in denial?
Jessica and Roland were fugitives for two weeks before they were arrested in Florida after attending a parade at Universal Studios. The nation has been watching via media headlines the story of little James, the son of Jessica Linscott who was beaten and bruised, covered in cigarette burns and temporarily blind.
Both Jessica Linscott and Roland Dow have reportedly waived extradition, meaning they will be heading back to New Hampshire soon. This is fortunate, and shows that at least they are willing to now face responsibility for their alleged actions. Hopefully in the truth that comes out, it will be known who exactly did this to the child.
